So my facebook friend just posted this pic with this text….Well, I just witnessed blatant racial injustice with my own eyes. I was getting in my car after exiting a store when a young black man stumbled past me and collapsed against the store wall. When I got out to see if he was okay, a group of white people came rushing over, one of whom was a 20-something white woman who declared in distress, “I ran a red light and hit him with my car!” People immediately assured her that SHE would be okay, meanwhile the young man is writhing in pain on the ground, pants leg torn, tears running down his face. When the police arrived and the young woman explained what happened, it was suggested to her that maybe the light had been yellow and that the young man had “darted out into the street into her path.” I was floored. I said, “But she just SAID she ran the red light and hit him in the intersection!”
This is racism, but I’ve come to feel it is more primal, and intrinsic than that. We as a species believe that the other people, those who look different, those who are not the same us are, are inherently bad, dangerous and less Human. After all, if I am a person, and you do not look like me, how can it be that you are also a person.
It is also complete, and total ignorance, and bullshit. We are no longer cave dwellers protecting our food, and brethren from the other tribes.
Evolve you stupid creatures. Evolve.
